WHY IT MATTERS.

In theory, companies are ideal places to provide all 4. 
Unfortunately, 70% of all companies are leaning towards the opposite
(64% Gallup 2020; 70% Instant Print study 2021.)
 

Workplaces where people feel limited, stuck, stressed, demotivated, drained, unsafe, isolated, misunderstood, meaningless and bored. Inside those companies there is no enthusiasm, an intense fear of failure, gossip, focus on egocentric wins, constant dysfunction & drama, and a high turnover (the good people leave first).

 

Toxic Cultures are the #1 driver for the 'Great Resignation', as well as for founders to leave their own company.

 

It’s such a waste.

Waste of potential, time, energy, resources, and impact that could have happened.

 

Let’s reimagine what work & organizations could look like. 

Could feel like. 

Company Culture is always a reflection of its leadership, past or present. In toxic cultures, people act from a place of fear, and disconnection (ego). In thriving people act from love, and interdependence (purpose).

My mission is to guide teams to untie the knots so they can be in flow and create massive waves of impact, while continuously developing themselves and working in a healthy, energizing environment. 
 

We can shift toxic patterns & roadblocks.

Without blame, because the road to toxic cultures (hell) is paved with good intentions.

Because when we realise we are all part of the problem, we are all part of the solution
 

We believe most people are good. They can just be stuck sometimes in an ego mode (old habits, stories & beliefs) or a clusterfuck of outdated systems, regulations and misunderstandings. And it can be turned around.

"

COMPANY CULTURES CAN BE CHANGED.
ONE TEAM AT A TIME.

UNTIE THE KNOT.

The solution? For teams to be on purpose, we need to invest time.
 

Dedicated, undisturbed time for truthful, constructive, and inspiring dialogues. Time to reflect on the difficult questions, and how to resolve whatever is holding you back.

 

This is a game-changing combination of my most impactful workshops for teams:
 

A 5.DAYS TEAM SPRINT TO "UNTIE THE KNOT"
 

This is your invitation to invest 5 days with your team. One fully dedicated week to create a safe space, to be honest, to get clear your purpose, and to better understand each other, and your environment.

 

To practice dialogue techniques to empower each other and resolve issues intelligently and effectively. 

Slow down, to speed up.

It's worth it on so many levels.

"

IT MAKES SENSE TO INVEST AT LEAST AS MUCH TIME IN GETTING A TEAM ON PURPOSE, AS IN FINDING GOLDEN IDEAS.    

Liquid Drop

THE IMPACT.

The 5-day sprint will empower the team to achieve business goals more effectively because:

  • Clear goals prevent wasting time on non-priorities, doubting & going in circles. 
     

  • A shared purpose, aligned with a personal purpose increases drive & commitment.
     

  • Being aware of our ego modes and practising truthful dialogues prevents conflict & misunderstandings.
     

  • Removing cultural roadblocks increases efficiency & decreases frustration
     

  • Embodying a learning culture, with feedback loops & problem-solving techniques enables the team to solve any challenge within their influence
     

  • A personal development roadmap connected to overcoming your ego-modes & being your best self at work, and increases effectiveness, loyalty, and well-being. 
     

  • Systematically supporting each other on their roadmap & patterns to unlearn, increases the team's understanding, trust & connection.

 

 

In short,

Less fear, means less ego, means more truthful conversations,

means better decisions, means more impact in less time.

Carlijn-14-2.jpg

Expert in the field of leadership & team development, company-wide cultural transformations and implementing new ways of working & coaching innovation teams. 

My background in Organizational Psychology (Ma), and Organizational Culture & Sciences (Ma) makes me aware of the subtle nuances of human behaviour. 

From working with 400+ teams in the past decade, I know how important it is to have a winning team to make any idea work. And I have learned how to set the right conditions to create winning teams. Specialised for a C-level, senior or junior team. 

I am known to create safe spaces, where people can have truthful conversations. I guide team dialogues to make complex problems simple (break them down & understand them at the core) and to find practical solutions on the spot. 

I get excited when a team takes ownership and feels confident & capable that they can overcome any challenge together. That energy makes a team unstoppable.

THE 10 MODULES. 

#1
HOW DO YOU FEEL
NOW.

"

WHY IT MATTERS.
Before jumping into future visions, assessing the status quo is the best place to start.

It's easy to get lost in your head. Too rational. Disconnected from yourself & others. 

Or to be too busy to pause & reflect on how you feel, or to share openly how we feel about ourselves and where we are as a team. 

SETUP

  • Create a safe space to share in an open, truthful way. 

  • Reflect on how you feel personally. What is important for the team to know? 

  • Reflect on where you are right now as a team. How do you feel about that?

  • Reflect on where you are heading as a team. How does that make you feel? 

OUTCOME

  • Team members feel more relieved, heard & understood. 

  • Old judgements or misunderstandings have been cleared.

  • Trust is increased, and feeling open & free of shame or guilt is key in order to be creative, intuitive, and authentic.  And thus, the ability to solve problems wisely. 

"

WHY IT MATTERS.

It is the core question that any business and team should ask themselves:  "why are we here?"

OUTCOME

  • This workshop helps to clarify a practical purpose, that gives guidance to define priorities, goals, and values on how to get there. And to remove or adjust the parts that don't add value, but actually just noise. To come back to the core, and work with excitement on what truly matters.

#6
EGO
MODES.

"

WHY IT MATTERS.
We bring our whole selves to work whether we want to or not. Our dreams, our fears. Our higher self, and our inner child. And we can have a distorted way of viewing the world, based on old stories of our past. It leads to pleasing, proving to, hiding for, or ignoring others. We call these ego-modes. And it highly affects the way we collaborate & are able to connect.  The big question here is: "How am I in my own way?".
